8 tips to avoid trouble when traveling

One of the best parts of travel is to taste and taste a variety of fresh and delicious food, whether you are driving across the state or flying around the world. And, no doubt, relaxing and eating something that you won't eat at home for a week is fun, and it's part of the freedom and excitement of a vacation!

However, we all know this feeling. When we have too many days in a row, there are too many: complete lack of energy, bloating, dehydration, headache or hangover, obvious time difference, and increased likelihood of getting sick. All of this can minimize your travel pleasure. If you are a food-limited person, you will know that finding good food that is good for you will be even more frustrating!

The good news is that making a variety of food choices is easier than ever, leaving you healthy and energized while away from everyday life. Here are some simple ways to get the most out of your trip:

  1. Take precautions. Usually when we travel, we are no longer routine and do not eat regularly. Sometimes we can spend a few hours not eating.

    Contrary to popular mythology, you should “sell” for a big meal without eating. If you don’t eat for a long time, it will slow down your metabolism, cause your body to become dull and tired, and rely on calories. Our body has experienced the "mini planet" of these periods and put our brain in a panic mode. In order to maintain blood sugar stability and avoid energy loss [which may lead to excessive compensation for high sugar or fried foods], eat a little bit every few hours during transportation. When you go out, it appears in a nutrient-rich form. Food with high protein content. Packaged snacks are easy to access: nuts, seeds, boiled eggs, solid fruits [such as apples], vegetables and hummus, or natural fruit and nut bars.

    If you know where you live, you can go to the restaurants in the hotel area. Please contact your hotel or resort to read the menu carefully and view the available menus. Upon arrival, you can use an app like AroundMe to find a healthier restaurant in your area. Check out these smartphone apps to help you find gluten and other allergen-free options when you travel.

  2. Don't forget the grocery store! Supermarkets, especially local cooperatives, can be the best ally on your journey. You can get fresh produce and bulk healthy snacks easily and cheaply. You will find a wide variety of delicious foods, gluten-free, dairy products and other common allergens at reasonable prices. In addition, many cooperatives have a deli that you can get delicious sandwiches, salads or parcels during the day.

  3. Your mother is right: get your greens and take your vitamins. During your travels, your immune system is exposed to a host of new pathogens – especially on airplanes and other public transportation. You want to make sure your body has the ability to stay healthy and fight bacteria and toxins. Don't forget to pack a variety of vitamins and other supplements! If you are not ready to get into fresh vegetables, consider buying some powdered vegetables that you can carry with you and mix them with a glass of water or morning smoothies.

  4. Speaking of the morning smoothies… If you are really committed to eating fruits and vegetables daily, you might even consider carrying a travel mixer. For some it seems to be extreme, but with this in mind: most of them are under $20, it's easy to put in the trunk or the back of the car, and you can quickly make breakfast of fruits, nuts and vegetables. . It will let you go all morning.

  5. Drink more water than usual. Aircraft and hotel rooms are known to be dry. Walking all day consumes energy and dehydration. People often drink or soda during meals, which is also dehydrated. Drinking more than 8 cups of water a day can help you energize, moisturize cells, keep your skin radiant, and help remove toxins.

  6. Drinking less alcohol than drinking alcohol. This can be challenging, especially on business trips, where drinking is a familiar pastime. But in addition to worsening dehydration and jet lag, recycling more than two drinks will result in more unhealthy diets. [A study by the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that when drinking more than two cups, men averaged 433 calories from alcohol and food!]

  7. Try to make your beauty rest for eight hours. It's easier said than done, I know! However, getting a decent rest helps stabilize your metabolism, reset your adrenal system, and boost your immunity. Taking a full rest will make the other options you face while on vacation easier.

  8. Try the "one complete" rule. Let yourself enjoy the food and enjoy them – keep it once a day. Get that gorgeous chocolate cake. Extra help with steak fries. Order the things that are poured happily with butter and fall in love with every bite. Then, finish the unhealthy food that day. There are always more.
